Martin, our app developer and all round apple guru has decided to move on. So, I decided his farewell card had to be inspired by apple. The card stock is actually silver (bit it is very reflective!!) and I used white ink. I made my own stencil from a trace of my macbook logo. The balance is a little “not quite really”, but I think it will do the trick:
Just made it in time to submit to the current Casology challenge, yay. The cue card at casology this week is three: there are 3 words in the sentiment, 3 layers of card stock, and finally three square corners. Have a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by!!
A colleague is having her first baby soon, and so on Tuesday we are throwing her a “baby shower” as it is her last day at work before maternity leave. I had fun making her a card this weekend for everyone to sign (there are a few pages inside the card so there is tons of room for everyone to write a few words).
The photo was taken with my iPhone. I really enjoyed playing with my distress inks, embossing paste, a simon says stamp exclusive falling snow stencil to create a fun background. I also loved playing with my very cute purple onion stamps to create the scene!!
Linking up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Challenges
Less is more challenge this week is to water colour. I water coloured this cute image from penny black using distress inks. I also used my SLR camera to take the photo for the first time instead of my iPhone (and some hints from Debby Hughes about taking good shots of your cards), made a huge difference.
I have been playing with scene stamping recently, and this is my third attempt and my first one that I have finished successfully. I love playing with ink and colouring images. I have been learning a lot about this style of card making by watching Kevin’s (who designed these stamp’s) youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/stampscapes
For the first time in a lot of months … I made a card!! It felt so good. I enjoyed using some new paper smooches dies, and a fab lawn fawn alphabet stamp, … and most of all the cutest little dude from purple onion designs. I also got to use embossing paste through the simon says stamp falling snow stencil.
Fab card to make, hope my crafty friend that it is for likes it too!
Have a fab day!!
One of my favorite types of cards are thank you cards. I find them useful when I am traveling and so many other occasions too… and there is a cool gratitude campaign collection that is put together by Susan Raihala that these can become part of.
Here is a set of 4 thank you cards that I made the other day using my new “My Favorite Things” alphabet die and my “Simon Says Stamp” you stampset, along with my wonderful distress paints.
and some more color options:
The one layer Wednesday challenge is to have one image stamp, one ink color and one sentiment stamp …
I really love this sketched image from the wetlands stampin up set … and it looks great water-colored etc … but it also looks pretty great just by itself, so here tis.
Thanks for stopping by!!
